This post is sponsored by Michaels…all opinions, photos and creations are 100% mine!I love calendars…love, love, love them! I think my obsession with calendars started when I was in high school. I was having trouble keeping up with my assignments and schedule in the 11th grade, and sought the help of my guidance counselor/mentor, Mrs. Eller, and she bought me my first student planner. She sat down with me and showed me how she used a planner to help her keep track of everything. From the moment I started writing things in that planner, my life changed. I no longer felt like I was forgetting things, and I stopped over scheduling myself. I could also keep up with fun events and friend’s birthdays. Since then, I have always been so excited to buy my new calendar and planner for the next year. I thoroughly enjoy writing all of the birthdays, events, school breaks and holidays on my calendar! I love a pretty calendar too, so when I got the chance to try out the Michaels Recollections Calendar Kit, I was sooo excited! This fabulous 12 month blank wall calendar is a fun and memorable way to display your favorite photographs throughout the year. I couldn’t wait to personalize it for myself!
I immediately got started personalizing my calendar. I dug through some family photos and added some to the designer cards with some washi tape. October is my favorite by far…not because it’s my birthday month or anything like that. I just love the colors! I added one of my favorite photos of Kate and Cam visiting a pumpkin patch when they were little…it just makes me smile!
I also love that it’s like a mini scrapbook. I am going to be sure to write down our memories as we go along through the months and add it to our family’s photo albums and scrapbooks. Kind of like a mini year in review! Can you imagine how much fun it would be to look back years later and see what your family did all year long?
